Captain J. Gordon

Today, I flew from New York’s JFK to Montego Bay, Jamaica!!! Let me start off by saying from pushback to parking at the gate, this flight was nothing short of amazing!! The takeoff was incredibly smooth despite the 22kt crosswind. The plane handled the turbulence very well today. Lastly, the landing was super smooth with the 20kt crosswind 😎👨🏾‍✈️ I am very glad to see how much I’ve progressed since I’ve been flying. At a point in time, I wouldn’t even fly if the winds were too high because i didn’t know how to handle them. Now, I look forward to having the high winds just so that I can have a challenge. Anyway, my day was great and I hope you all can say the same. Until next time fam, see you in the skies 😊

Great photos! That MBJ approach with the turn onto final is very sharp. Done it in real life on MD-88 and A321.
